Manson Brands Lawsuit "Ridiculous"
The keyboardist, who was in Manson's band until last year, claims that he is owed profits from the group valued at $20 million (£10 million).
He says that Manson spent the money from the band on a new house and various Nazi collectables.
In addition the suit filed says that Manson bought a full skeleton of a four-year-old Chinese girl and the skeleton of a 17th century male in a wheelchair.
Manson responded by saying to MTV News: "The fact that he's claiming that I've treated him unfairly, financially, is really ridiculous.
"And I would never spend my money on a Chinese girl skeleton. That would be crossing the line.
"It's a Chinese boy, for the record."
The former band member also claims that Manson spent a large sum on an engagement ring for the burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese.
Manson married the dancer in December 2005, but Von Teese filed for divorce last year after a year of marriage.
The rocker has enjoyed a hugely successful career so far and released his latest album, Eat Me Drink Me, earlier this year.
